The Samsung SGH-I727R I have purchased in January appears to have a visible screen fabrication defect. When viewing any darker (black) pictures or dark movie scenes in particular the screen appears to have what I would like to describe as "stains" and this was NOT present on neither past iPhone I have owned. This is unacceptable and allegedly all SGH-I727's have this problem. I'm asking here whether or not I can go into a Rogers store and exchange this piece of junk for an iPhone 4S. I'm pretty sure some Twitter, Facebook exposure of this would bring a lot of attention and many dissapointed customers. I was not made aware at the time of purchase the device has a defect.
It's not a defect, it's the crappy quality of the movie you're watching...
The SGS 2's SAMOLED Plus display is one of the best displays on the market, blows away the iPhone 4/4S' display.
Do you have an anti glare screen? If so it's hard to tell. If your screen is clean try viewing certain dark pictures and HD movie scenes it will show a pattern of lines. It's not easy to spot. Need a trained eye but it's there. Still unacceptable from one of the best devices of late 2011. I'll see if I can take a few screens and post them here later or tom.
Achilles it's a known issue with the screens some come broken straight from the manufacturer. Do a bit of googling there is an XDA thread on this.
The "skyrocket" version of the S2 is known to have these screen problems. Seems to be a calibration issue that both samsung and rogers are blatantly ignoring. The screen does have a lower resolution than the iphone so there's not much more to expect.
